About this Film

'Journey to Mecca' is an IMAX® dramatic documentary feature that tells the amazing story of Ibn Battuta, the greatest explorer of the Old World, following his first pilgrimage between 1325 and 1326 from Tangier to Mecca.

His perilous journey resonates with adventure while presenting an unforgettable picture of Islamic civilization during the 14th century, culminating with Ibn Battuta's first Hajj. The story is book-ended by a close-up look at the contemporary Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca that draws three million Muslims from around the world.

What an AMAZING film!

Reviewer: Amanda WattDate: 2013-06-24

My family and I came to see Journey To Mecca together a few weeks ago. It was a perfect film to watch as a family as we all learned so much about Ibn Battuta and his journey, each taking away something unique. I was particularly struck by how amazing the visuals were of the modern day Hajj. A must see IMAX documentary!

Phenomenal
